I used to be crazy-active on this site, with bookrings and release challenges, buying and registering books like mad. Oy! the time I spent BXing! I still release books from time to time, but I'm mostly inactive here. I'd like to thank BookCrossing for two months of free wings, bringing me back to my profile and making me miss it, you big tease, you.

I'll jump right in and list the book(s) I'm currently reading, though I may or may not update this list. Thanks for stopping by, dear reader. I hope you enjoy your time at BookCrossing. Be well.
